About Dr Kenneth Tan

Thanks to ample experience in several fields of dentistry, Dr. Tan is a versatile dentist whose skills benefit patients throughout Singapore. Dr. Tan has a clinical interest in cosmetic dentistry and smile makeovers, and he enjoys correcting malocclusions with the use of modern methods such as Invisalign. In fact, during 2014, Dr. Tan received the distinguished status of Platinum provider with Invisalign. His status rose to Platinum Elite Invisalign Provider in 2015, after he successfully treated over 81 patients with Invisalign in one year.

In 2016, he was again awarded for being a Platinum provider with Invisalign. A strong belief in the old saying that “prevention is better than a cure” inspired Dr. Tan to spearhead the Minimal Intervention Program at the National Dental Center, with the help of other pioneering dentists. He ensures that his patients are always fully informed before he begins any type of treatment. In 2006, Dr. Tan participated in the University of North Carolina’s student exchange program in the United States. The following year, Dr. Tan received his Bachelor of Dental Surgery from the National University of Singapore. He served at the National Dental Centre for a time, as well as teaching Nitec in Dental Assisting for groups of dental assistants.

 

His career repertoire includes serving as a committee member for the International Dental Exhibition Meet in 2006 and 2008, plus a stint as a committee member at the FDI Annual World Dental Congress in 2009. Dr. Tan continues to boost his effectiveness as a holistic dentist by expanding his knowledge and training through courses overseas and in Singapore. Currently, Dr. Tan holds a membership in the Singapore Dental Association. In 2007, he functioned as a core member in the ethics department, and during the two following years he served an important role in the area of oral health awareness. His memberships in the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology, the College of General Dental Practitioners in Singapore, and the Aesthetic Dentistry Society of Singapore allow him to extend his positive influence for the oral health of Singapore residents.

 

Outside of dentistry, Dr Tan volunteers for the deaf community and enjoys an intense workout at the gym.

Hi there, It really depends on how bad the decay is. If it is fairly superficial, the dentist can fix it and retard the decay activity thus salvaging the tooth without any impact on her adult tooth that will be replacing it in the future. However, if there is a very deep deca...

Hi there! The only time one may consider not to fill a cavity is when the tooth is rendered poor or hopeless meaning that it's not worth saving. So with that rule, we should always try to arrest the decay activity of any cavities. Arresting the decay activity could be having fill...

Hi there! I can truly empathize with this struggle, being a father of 2 toddlers. I normally do advise parents that inculcating the habit of brushing starts as early as when they are a newborn. Introducing them a towel or a gauze to clean the bony ridges daily even before the ...

Hi there! Chewies are meant for you to bite whenever the aligners are placed back on your teeth. This is to allow better seating of the aligners to your teeth thus moving them in a more predictable and effective fashion. Chewies benefit most Invisalign patients. Do talk to your d...

Hi there! Most people are generally eligible to some forms of whitening. However, it is advisable for you to inform your practitioner about your teeth sensitivity prior whitening. Not that it will cause disastrous consequences, but it would make your teeth whitening procedure a l...

Hi! Generally teeth sealants aka pit and fissure sealants are not indicative for all patients. Why is that so? There are several factors that would predispose a patient to possibly needing them: 1. Patients who are at a high risk of developing decay. These are patients ...

Hi there! Hope this finds you well. A loose tooth generally wouldn't cause too much issues or distress to patients. And it should exfoliate spontaneously. However if your notice your child having difficulty in eating or maybe eating at a relatively slower pace than before, i...

It does seems like veneers or crowns could be the better option for what you described above. Veneers (either porcelain or composite) would be able to give you a more uniform shade and appearance for your teeth. Like what Dr Soo mentioned as well, if the tooth is heavily filled in...

Hope this finds you well. The black triangles that you mention can be quite annoying isn't it. If it doesn't bother you all that much, sometimes leaving it alone and just improving your oral hygiene at that area should suffice as it tends to trap food occasionally. Sometim...

Hi there! Hope this finds you well. In my usual practice, during the initial consult, I will take some measurements on the teeth that I will be correcting, specifically the width of the tooth. From that, I will derive the ideal length for that specific tooth if I were to follo...
